    Another book recommendation. To my taste, A. A. Blaker's book Field Photography (look for it on, e.g., abebooks.com, alibris.com, amazon.com) is the best beginner's introduction to photography ever written. It is far, far superior to sketchy and somewhat random advice delivered via bulletin board.

    Seems to me I have heard of someone in the Provo area. Too far north for me. Call the local community college to see if they have a regular non digital photo course you can take. In my opinion it would be well worth the money. When I got started I took a class and that led to the addiction I am dealing with today. Who knew that the little 35mm camera would morph into an 8x10.

    Here's a bit more info on how film speed, shutter speed and aperture are related.

    Start off with your film speed on a bright sunny day...
    If your film is iso400 try these settings

    Shutter speed is aproximatly 1/iso gives 1/400 but camera shutter speed which is the closest is 500 that translates to 1/500 of a second.
    Aperture should be set on f16 for the bright sunny day.

    So shutter 500 and aperture set on f16 allows a certain amount of light to hit your film and make the correct exposure.

    There must be more to it than that you say...
    Well...

    If you were to change your shutter speed to 1/1000 (1000 on shutter speed setting) and
    change your aperture to f11, you will allow the exact same amount of light to strike the film...

    It is one shutter speed FASTER to give 1/2 the time for light to hit the film BUT...
    it is also one f stop opening larger (bit confusing because smaller f stop opens up the blades in the lens more) allowing 2x the light to pass through the lens...

    Final result... 1/2 the time by 2x the lens opening gives same exposure!

    You will soon learn why we chose different shutter speed and f stop combinations for particular photos to accentuate what we are trying to show in our photos.

    Hope this makes sense to you...

    It is intended to give you some info one spoonful at a time.

    Oh... The other three variables in getting the PROPER film exposure are...

    The film speed (ISO rating)
    The intensity of light (sunny day, cloudy day, late evening, campfire etc.)

    You will soon learn which film to choose.
    You will soon learn how to use either your camera's built in light meter or a hand held meter.

    No more on those items...

    As I said... one spoonful at a time.

    Use any electronic flash. Just select the correct synch speed(s). That is explained in your owner's manual.

    And another question. Is there another kind of battery that I can buy instead of Mercury? (They don't make them anymore I guess)
